These activities are meant to be used to build early reading fluency skills. They are designed to help students meet kindergarten benchmarks and are aligned with the Common Core State Standards.
Common Core State Standards Covered:
RF.K.1d Recognize and name all upper- and lowercase letters of the alphabet.
RF.K.2c Blend and segment onsets and rimes of single-syllable spoken words.
RF.K.3a Demonstrate basic knowledge of one-to-one letter-sound correspondences by producing the primary sound or many of the most frequent sounds for each consonant.
RF.K.3b Associate the long and short sounds with the common spellings (graphemes) for the five major vowels.
RF.K.3c Read common high-frequency words by sight (e.g., the, of, to, you, she, my, is, are, do, does).
RF.K.4 Read emergent-reader texts with purpose and understanding.
Included with this unit:
10 pages of Letter Naming RAM boards
27 Pages of Letter Sound RAM boards with picture clues
11 High Frequency Word RAM boards
13 CVC Word RAM boards
10 Sentence Fluency practice pages
I use these pages when working with my small groups. Make a binder for each child. You might want to use plastic page protectors in a ½ inch binder. (I made one for each student in my small group.)
Spend a just a few minutes each day working on the pages in this unit. Short daily practice sessions are best. As students master a page and are able to read it fluently, move on to the next pages. Your kids will be fluent readers in no time!
